After gastrectomy

I have suffered from acid reflux and indigestion for some time which affects my appetite. I am expecting to have a full stomach removal. I've been reading on here that's some people suffer terribly from reflux following surgery. I can't bear the thought of going through stomach removal and still suffering from acid reflux afterwards. I find it so debilitating.

Once the stomach removed it is Bile reflux as no acid from the stomach. Had op to remove stomach because of cancer 5 years ago and suffered quite badly with bile reflux initially but improved somewhat although still get it and have to sleep upright all I can say is that one gets used to it and it is better than the alternative?
